Three Percent #52: 2013 Doesn't Officially Start Until We Podcast
So, it’s been a while. Due to some technical difficulties, we haven’t been able to post a podcast for the past few weeks. But thanks to the whizbang IT department at the University of Rochester, our 10,000 year old iMac is up and functioning again. Which means that 2013 can finally officially start—thanks to our preview podcast.
This week, Tom Roberge and I discuss a bunch of 2013 books that we’re excited about. Our preview includes everything from Javier Marias’s latest, to 18% Gray (and the faux 18% Gray) to the new Laszlo Krashnahorkai to Yoko Ogawa’s Revenge and Mo Yan’s Sandalwood Death and, as always, is a mix of incisive literary observations and irreverence and soccer talk.
And this week’s music is from Yo La Tengo’s new album—one of my favorites releases of this new year.
